    It's located on the ceiling of the fresh food compartment behind the light assembly. Use a flat blade screwdriver under the thermistor cover and then squeeze the cover at the bottom to get it off. It might be foamed in and you'll need to dig it out to get to the wires.

    I took the cover off for the sensor. How far should the wire leads attached to it come out?

    Far enough that you can cut the wires and strip 3/4" insulation off each one. Then you'll need to use the supplied crimp connector to crimp the ends to the new thermistor and fill the crimp connector with RTV silicone. You'll probably need to cut some of the wire off the new thermistor so it will go back in the spot it came from.

    Thanks, i was only able to get the old sensor out so far. I cut off the old sensor almost to the end of it and had about 4" of wire coming out of the fridge. I spliced it and it seems to be good. I didnt want to pull the old wire out too far since it seemed either short or binded up. Hopefully it works. I checked the old sensor and it 5.35K Ohms at ambient temp. Hopefully its out of spec at 37F
